  • Primed Flow – Increases your Energy pool.
  • Energy Siphon – Gives you passive energy regen so you’re not dependant on drops and your team’s own ES.
  • Vigor / Vitality – Additional survivability.
  • Fracturing Crush – Shreds enemy armor. Utility for either build option.
  • Duration Mods – Anything but Narrow Minded will supplement Bullet Attractor or Fracturing Crush, without killing the range. Primed Continuity would be optimal.
